Mountain plants

In the Fennoscandian mountain plant section, hundreds of arctic-alpine mountain tundra species are presented.

The low-stature species of shrubs, mosses and lichens, which have adapted to the harsh climate and soil conditions, as well as the species that grow along mountain streams, create an atmosphere of the fells of Lapland.
